The Doctor Who franchise will see another regeneration in games starting next year.
BBC Worldwide announced today that it has partnered with Supermassive Games to deliver Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock via downloadable platforms on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PC early next year. The Eternity Clock will be the first of three Doctor Who games from the collaboration, with details on the next two games coming next year.
Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock will put players in a wholly new storyline written with the BBC Wales team and starring the Doctor and River Song. According to BBC Worldwide, the game will have "photo-real graphics, television-quality scenes, and highly realistic characters." Full voice over from the show's stars, Matt Smith and Alex Kingston, are also in place for the puzzle-solving adventure game.
This will be the first Doctor Who title developed by Supermassive Games. The studio has previously worked on Move-enabled PS3 games, including Start the Party and Tumble. It has also developed a number of Little Big Planet 2 level packs.
